A Lot of Nothing

  Mo McRae

  United States     104 minutes

Synopsis

James and Vanessa are the perfect married couple; successful, sexy, and smart. But after learning that the latest fatal police shooting involving an unarmed youth in their community was committed by their neighbor, a white policeman, they are shaken from their upper-middle-class complacency and driven to take action—with explosive results. Stars Cleopatra Coleman and Y’lan Noel deliver fiercely committed performances, while actor-turned-director Mo McRae brilliantly ratchets up the tension in this hothouse thriller. Following in the footsteps of recent social satires Get Out and Sorry to Bother You, A Lot of Nothing artfully skewers our assumptions about class, race, and justice.
